The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood Museum announces its annual "Peabody at Homewood" performance series, which showcases the work of some of the most promising musicians from the Peabody Conservatory of Music. The performances are presented amidst the splendid architecture and furnishings of Homewood. The popular Friday evening concerts begin at 5:45 p.m. on March 6, April 3 and May 1.
Each concert will be held in the Reception Hall of the museum, located on The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus at 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore. The museum will open at 5 p.m. prior to each concert. Guests may meet the evening's musicians at a wine and cheese reception following each performance. For single concerts, admission is $12 for Homewood members and $15 for the general public; admission for all three concerts is $30 for Homewood members and $40 for the general public. Due to the intimacy of the space, seating is limited and reservations are required. For reservations, membership and parking information, the public may call 410-516-5589 or visit www.museums.jhu.edu.
The Peabody Consort, a mixed consort of selected early music majors led by noted lutenist Mark Cudek, will open the series on March 6, with a performance of music from the Baroque and Renaissance repertoire on instruments made to replicate those of the period.
Guitarist Richard Barry and violinist Katarzyna Bryla will perform on April 3, collaborating on a program of works by Mozart, Chopin, Schubert, Paganini and Piazzolla.
The final concert on May 1 will feature a return performance by Russian virtuoso flutist Anastasia Petanova. Petanova has appeared as soloist with the Moscow Virtuosi and the Russian National Orchestra under Vladimir Spivakov on several tours both in Russia and abroad, and will be performing at the Kennedy Center this spring. She studies with Marina Piccinini at the Peabody Conservatory.
